The leadership of your mind.

January 7th, 2011

We’re a full week into 2011. And with resolutions or goals for the year written down, I’d venture to say we’re all focused on success. It feels good to think ahead, anticipating those feelings of satisfaction and fulfillment that come with expected achievement and growth. In other words, as you think, so you feel.

Now, as you look over the list of things you want to do this year, I wonder if it includes also feelings and attitudes. If not, here are some suggestions* for your work-in-progress list:

1.     I will approve of myself, my characteristics, my abilities, my tendencies, and my likes and dislikes, realizing that these form my unique individuality. I have them for a reason.

2.     I will approve of and rejoice in my accomplishments, and I will be as vigorous in listing these – and as rigorous in remembering them – as I have ever been in remembering and enumerating my failures or lacks of accomplishment.

3.     I will remember the tremendous energy and potential that lies within me to create that which I can imagine for myself.

4.     I will realize that my professional future is a probability. In terms of everyday experiences, nothing exists there yet. It is virgin territory, planted by my feelings and thoughts in the present. Therefore I will plant accomplishments and successes, and I will do this by focusing on how I want and expect the future to be for me.

Whether it’s a new year, a new month, a new week, or a new day, you get to choose what you’re focused on. So, go ahead. Have some fun thinking, creating, growing, becoming more, succeeding.

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” —Napoleon Hill
